  1. Hi Everyone, With Interviews almost upon us, I was wondering if anyone recommends or has any experience with using Prep Companies for CaRMS interviews? OR whether this is even useful to explore? Thanks
  2. In a similar boat tbh . I hope it goes well for us
  3. Just curious on everyone fared for their IM invites or know more about it? It wasn't really what I expected today but grateful to get the invites I did.
  4. Thanks so much for this, very helpful! I guess with it being a COVID year and away electives being cancelled, I fear and suspect that the number of applicants at the very least to IM will increase, not sure about the number of applicants that'll have it as their first-choice.
  5. Just getting nervous as we start the waiting game here. How competitive is Internal Medicine usually? How many interviews do people usually expect? As someone who's all in on Internal Medicine this year applying to 17 programs in 13 different schools, any advice is appreciated.
  6. Hi Guys, I have friend who is applying to medical schools in Ontario this upcoming summer and I was wondering for those who had interviews to both Ottawa/Mac or Mac (with lower GPAs and CARS), what would you guys recommend for preparation, resources and techniques? I received an interview only from Mac this past cycle with decent GPA and CARS so I assumed my CASPer to be more on the mediocre side but just wanted some advice from the rest of you guys!
  7. Result: Accepted off the waitlist, May 28th 3:19 PM, Hamilton Campus cGPA: 3.9 CARS: 128 CASPer: Felt ALRIGHT, not great because I didn't get an interview from UOttawa but it felt decent. Spent about two weeks prepping after I handed in my OMSAS application with friends and did about two full-length tests from prep companies. Interview: 5 stations felt REALLY good, 2 felt decent and the rest mediocre. I think it was very important for me to have a structure in my answers but also find a balance in having an answer that is free-flowing and connects to personal experiences!
  8. Accepted to Hamilton Campus from the waitlist! Timestamp around 3:19 PM! Honestly, I had lost all hope and was working on my AMCAS application but I could not be more grateful! Looking at this forum and the waitlist community, they have been really supportive. Thanks to everyone guys and best of luck!
  9. Looking at old threads, you are right, but its hard to expect anything at this point. If it happens, I guess it'll be a nice surprise. I can imagine it sucks Punkwich, this waiting process and uncertainty is a killer but if anything, I guess there's always next year and we should be proud of how far we got! I know its hard to be, at this moment but maybe its for the best
  10. Same here, starting to lose almost all the hope I had
  11. Congrats on your acceptance! What was the timestamp?
  12. Timestamp? Edit: I just saw the other post, I'm sorry LOL All the best at Mac!
